ASCL has created a new position on Council
(commencing September 2023) in recognition of the work Virtual School Heads do to promote the opportunities of some of the most academically, socially and emotionally vulnerable young people in schools and colleges. We are working with the National Association of Virtual School Heads
(NAVSH) to maximise the opportunities for insight and understanding of ASCL members into the work of Virtual Heads.
Andrew Wright, ASCL representative for Virtual Schools and Matthew Cooke, President, NAVSH, have produced a series of FAQs
about the work of virtual schools. These explain how engagement of the Virtual Head Teachers with all schools, regardless of status, will help to maximise the connectivity of the school with the full range of local authority services, such as SEND, health, social and criminal services, for some of our most vulnerable learners
